Triumph of Steam

This Telerail DVD, consisting of 2 DVD’s, from 2005 can now be seen at 24trains.tv. It is about the internationally famous Ji Tong railway line in China which opened in 1995. When news of this wonderful new steam line initially reached the west Tele Rail became the first professional film crew to visit the line, and we've been going back there ever since! Back then no one could ever have dreamt that this magnificent 943-kilometre line would employ QJs steam locomotives for over ten years but that's exactly what happened. Now with the final section due to be dieselised in Autumn 2005 it's an appropriate time to enjoy 10 years of unsurpassed steam action. This DVD celebrates the very best steam action from over the years throughout the entire length of this famous line: - Jing Peng the highest spot on the line action from the depths of winter to the last Autumn of steam in 2004. - Atmospheric shed visits to Daban, Chabuga, Holuka & Baiqi. - Lindong summer 2005 scenes across the beautiful Mongolian grasslands as steam works out the final minutes before dieselisation. If you were lucky enough to visit this breath-taking line when steam reigned supreme this magnificent DVD will make a wonderful souvenir. If you didn't get the chance to visit the last great steam line on earth this fabulous DVD will take you there! English spoken.
